HTTP Remote Connection For SAP Business Object

Dear experts,

We open HTTP remote connection for our SAP Business Object.

Our Business Object private IP is

Therefore, we maintained below entry in our saprouttab:

KP "p:CN=sapserv9, OU=SAPRouter, O=SAP, C=DE" 8080

But, when we open SAP Business Object CMC we can see there is port 6400 showing.

Therefore, should we also nee to maintained below entry in saprouttab?

KP "p:CN=sapserv9, OU=SAPRouter, O=SAP, C=DE" 6400

Thank you.

    Opening port 8080 shall be sufficient for you. Port 8080 is the communication port for Apache Tomcat server which holds the BO application. Port 6400 is internal communication port for BO SIA and CMC.

    Hi Iqbal,

    You only need to maintain the URL in the connection details.

    And because the URL has port 8080 this is the port that you would have to maintain in your saprouttab file.

    Even though the CMC URL is port 8080 but the logon screen shows the you will see the comms will still use port 8080.


    I do not foresee a problem with only 8080 being open. If it does give an issue at the time it is a one liner and does not even require a saprouter restart. Always best to leave as little as possible open.

    Kind Regards,
